    Repost of True Apologist Confession

    I don't hold WMT shares except indirectly through mutual funds.

    I fully admit WMT uses public taxes for their benefit. I also believe the employees benefit from this arrangement and they enter the agreement freely. I also believe/know state governments ask WMT to support Welfare to Work programs.

    Happiness is state of mind. The mexican immigrants who are here are happier than if they were at home. If they were happier at home they would go home don't you think. If a WMT employee is unhappy, it is their choice to be unhappy. Insanity is making the same decisions and expecting the outcomes to differ. If you are unhappy , move on to bigger and better things. Make a change in your life which leads to happiness.

    I happily pay taxes. It is good for America.

    I am unhappy about how taxes are utilized for too many social engineering projects and I am not happy about how inefficiently we use taxes. I also understand some of that inefficiency is built into the economy and won't go away.

    Mostly, I am unhappy when I read lies and fabrications and exagerations. Anything but the truth INTERFERES with good decision making. How can it be a good decision if it based on lies and half truths ?

    And lastly, I support WMT in their right to run their business according to the law of the land. Period. Don't engage in a smear campaign against WMT based on ignorance and lies, change the law. The problem is the law.

    There, I layed out my values and my agenda, let's here from the basher side for a little while.
